government can come in and take your guns away. that's what the debate will be. >> governor dean, as someone that had a strong rating from the nra, i want to point to some of the reaction comes from senators who are probably going to have a hard time on the vote on this bill. mark pryor says in a statement, with i don't take gun advice from the mayor of new york city. i listen to arkansans. there's a little bit more room in the statement from senator mary landrieu. senator landrieu has a great deal of respect for mayor bloomberg on a great deal issues, but the senator will be listening closely to her constituents on this issue. you hear that and look at the poll, it is overwhelmingly supported by 91% of this country. some form of universal background check. why then is it so hard for our political class to catch up with that, governor? >> this is about guns and power -- excuse me, this is about money and power. this is not about guns. what the nra is doing, you played the clip. look, i ran for office eight times, statewide in vermont. i got an "a" from the nra every single time. why? because
career. >> the favorite thing in the accounting discussion is compare the government to a family, saying you couldn't -- well, families do run debt, they cannot afford to buy their houses for cash, so they have a thing called a mortgage, which is the national debt of the family in effect. they try to oversimplify everything in this, but is there some break through in this point of republicans saying you know what, the debt isn't such a serious problem? >> there's no break through. i think it is a big deal that john boehner and others can't uphold this that the debt crisis is coming now or soon. if you go through what he said further, he said it is looming and coming. this is always the thing, with this spring of deficit hawk, there's always in some future the great crisis we need to fear. those that have said have been wrong, two years ago was supposed to be then. at least they're backing off it being so soon. that's eroding the underlying nature of the argument. >> does this help explain why they're doing nothing, the debt isn't a big deal? >> they a sequester, what more do they need. >
with the government and a very war hawkish administration seemed to be anti-american. so in that environment, the voices that were speaking out against this war, but in that environment, those voices could be muffled and people were being painted as being anti-american because they were pro peace. >> right. mrs. walsh, we saw what donald rumsfeld said on twitter. we saw dick cheney say he would do it all over again and not acknowledge any mistakes. >> the main fault -- i don't spend a lot of time thinking about my faults i guess would be the answer. >> no kind of political introspection there. but will history let these men off the hook for what they did? >> no, they're going down in history for a horrible, terrible war. i was going to say a lapse of judgment, but it was not a lapse of judgment. it was a deliberate act. they cooked the evidence. they brow beat people. they would karl rove as their political hench men. the vote was scheduled on the eve of the elections deliberately. i don't want to let democrats off the hook. 29 senate democrats voted to authorize the use of force. some apolo
used chemical weapons on a village in the north. the attack killed 31 people, and the government sealed off the area to keep out journalists and international observers. president obama says he is not sure. >> the use of chemical weapons against the syrian people would be a serious and tragic mistake. they must understand they will be held accountable for the use of chemical weapons or their transfer to terrorists. >> netanyahu agrees with president obama on syria. conservatives tried to use our relationship with israel to grab votes. they accused president obama of not getting it, of being dangerous. some called him the most anti-israel president in american history. >> i want to thank you for the investment you have made in our relationship and in strengthening the friendship and alliance between our two countries. i am absolutely convinced that the president is determined to prevent iran from getting nuclear weapons. the president has reaffirmed more than any other president that israel has a duty to defend itself. it is a profound honor to host you, the leader of the free world and
states understands the situation they're in and has their backs as he asks the israeli government to make some of these tough choices. >> are peace talks really a possibility in obama's second term? is he going to give a term like jimmy carter? is there any possibility he can do that? >> realistically, it's probably the third on the list that the interesting thing today is that president obama and prime minister netanyahu have not always agreed on iran in terms of the timetable or in terms of what's next or what the response should be. and the two are a year or so away from having to make some kind of strategic decision. they fails the sudden emergence of syria and the possible use of chemical weapons, and that has suddenly risen to the stop of the agenda. given that there are different palestinian factions, that looks further down the road. >> do either of you believe that assad used chemical weapons? or is that being deployed by some forces that have at stake the division between israel and the united states in a substantive way that would create tension. >> i don't know. i think there'
once the government in iran decides to go ainu direction. i have good hope in a number of grounds. one, the two countries are in agreement, and two, the mullahs in iran will see the united states ready to strike should they decide to build a nuclear bomb. why? there was no reason for the trip to israel unless the united states was ready for this to pound out this agreement between the united states and israel. the best result in this fight is over the other side, over in tehran. they get to see how serious we are. they see if they build a weapon, we come at them. if they know that now, it could change everything. that's "hardball" for now, thanks for joining us. "the ed show" starts right now. >>> good evening. welcome to the ed show. i'm michael in for ed. tonight, john boehner backs off background checks. and saxby chambliss doesn't support gay marriage because he doesn't plan on having one. and a crisis somewhere you never believe and the best borrow baptist church gets a new neighbor. first, president obama calls on young israelis to embrace peace. this is "the ed show." as ed woul
and that -- until we ultimately get to that, as to why we believe as society and officially as government that violence is a means to an end, if we think something has weapons of mass destruction, it is okay to invade their country and kills hundreds of thousands of civilians. if someone commits crime, i think north korea, saudi arabia, iran, that still have the death penalty. we believe it's okay to kill a human being whose committed a crime. we believe societal wise and gender wise, that it is okay to strike a woman. a woman is hit, physically abused every 15 seconds in this country. that's where we live, michael. as i said in my last movie, you know, i refuse to live in a country like this and i'm not leaving. so if i'm not leaving, something's got to change. >> let me ask you. >> yeah, sorry. >> no, no. it's very powerful. obviously obsession of violence isn't characterized in terms of the impact, consequence and difference is that we have guns, and we have ready access to guns and those guns flood our society and those guns have big magazines and big drums and big clips and we are ab

. the thrust of the story should have been president bush said something, contradicted by his own government and that should have been the lead, the fact he was saying something that wasn't proven. again and again and again. colin powell, that speech he gave february 5th, 2003, everyone remembers that, you know -- >> swayed a lot of people. >> swayed a lot of people. the coverage was over the top. it was like writing about a rock star. then if you turned inside and kept on reading 20 inches in, you would find people saying wait a second, we don't know about this, we don't know about that. yeah. the people that dig deep can find this. i remember at the time there was a tide was hard to swim against. he would give that speech, then go on tv. >> you had some amazing moments on tv those days. >> a lot of fights. i said wait, the post, the times is reporting, i would talk, did my reporting, i talked to nuclear scientists about the aluminum tubes and they would say that wasn't proven. you would be laughed at. >> it was a wise man's view. a serious man's view. >> media consensus, tell you one story
where they happen to meet a ticket taker. even that, because he's a government worker he's probably making a living wage. >> michelle and richard very quickly? >> the republican party, i don't necessarily buy the premise the republican party is the enemy of identity politics. >> of course not. >> they love to slam identity politics. there is no party a obsessed with cultural signifiers and also that is more obsessed with token figure heads. as much as they hate affirmative action, this is a party that's on the hunt for any plausible face that they can put on -- they can put on themselves that's not a grouchy old white man. >> yeah. richard. >> these aren't individual identity politics. these are universal values. civil rights here. maybe the other side think this is a stand for freedoms and opportunity and they have a different frame on universal values. in politics, you're never going to find enough of a mosaic to elect you, at least not statewide or nationwide. this is about human rights and civil rights and they know that and why rob portman is talking this way. >> let's shift ge
